The appeal brought by Reverend Al Miller against his conviction last year for negligence resulting in the loss or theft of his licensed firearm was put off today.
His lawyer Robert Fletcher who is now representing Miller told the court that he needed more time to prepare his case and asked for an adjournment.
The court of appeal granted the adjournment but President of the Court of Appeal Seymour Panton ordered that the appeal be heard before the end of the year.
Miller, who is the pastor of the Fellowship Tabernacle Church, in St Andrew was fined $80,000 or three months in jail.
The fine has been paid.
Miller had claimed, in his statement to investigators, that he left the gun in his car when he and his daughter stopped at the Mico Practising Centre in Shortwood, St Andrew, to pick plums on January 22 last year.
However, in finding him guilty, Senior Resident Magistrate Lorna Williams rejected the statement, saying she had doubts about some areas of the statement.
